Peab has been awarded a Skr247m ($23.05m) contract by Härnösand Municipality for the construction of a new bridge in Sweden. 

Under the turnkey contract in partnering form, the community builder has been tasked with the demolition of the existing bridge over Nattviken in central Härnösand and the construction of a new openable bridge at the same location. 

Härnösand Municipality community board chairman Helena Elfvendal said: “We’ll get a new and modern bridge both technically and appearance-wise. It will be a landmark that everyone driving through the city on Highway E4 will notice.” 

The current clapboard bridge, inaugurated in 1937, is claimed to have reached the end of its technical lifespan.  

The new structure will be an arch bridge, drawing inspiration from the original bridge built in the late 1800s.  

It will feature a swing section to accommodate boat traffic.

To maintain traffic flow during construction, Peab will erect a temporary bridge.  

Peab region manager Jörgen Eriksson said: “I’m glad that in this technically advanced project we have, through our good partnership with Härnösand Municipality, found financial and sustainable solutions and the new bridge will be a big boost for its residents and visitors.

“With local resources we’re building critical community infrastructure in Härnösand.” 

Construction is anticipated to commence in June 2024, with the new bridge expected to be operational by June 2026. 

The order will be registered for the first quarter of this year. 

Earlier this week, Peab received a turnkey contract to renovate and extend the Stora kontoret office building in Oxelösund. 

The Skr160m contract was awarded by steel company SSAB
